Hi

I've always pronounced it die-cro-ic. I have been known to be wrong though (on many occasions:) )

Meant to say that it's dichroic - sorry I'm not being a smart-ass - I had to look up the spelling on google!!:)

Di = two
Chroic = of colour, as in chroma = colour.
Just say multicoloured.................at least it's english! :sm:

Yeah might just do that.
It's weird the Di - two thing, the ones ive got have multiple layers and colours ?
Who makes up these names anyway ?
